  1. Lessons from international experience in controlling pharmaceutical expenditure. I : Influencing patients.

    Article - En anglais

    This is the first of three papers to review international policies to control spending on drugs and improve the efficiency of drug use.

    Policies can target three main groups :

    Patients, prescribing doctors, and the drugs industry.

    In this paper we examine policies aimed at patients, particularly restrictions on reimbursement (such as prescription charges).

    Rigorous experimental and quasi-experimental studies suggest that policies to limit the level of reimbursement of drugs reduce the use of essential as well as non-essential drugs and may do more harm than good.
